Sandwich High School had all of the pieces it needed to easily take care of visiting Cape Cod Academy High School at home on Tuesday, January 11. The Knights jumped out early behind some solid all-around play from their starters and rolled to a 54-31 victory.

The squad improved to 3-1 overall with its third straight win. The game was the first for the girls in nearly two weeks as they had been off since last playing on December 29.

The game was all but decided after the first quarter of play. Sandwich blitzed the visiting Lady Seahawks and used a strong defensive effort, which resulted in 21 total steals, to feed the running game and score easy buckets. Sierra Brigham was the main recipient of the passes and scored the bunnies, hitting for all 10 of her points in the game in the opening stanza. She also pulled down four rebounds in the game.

By the end of that one-sided first quarter Sandwich enjoyed a 20-2 lead. The team turned that into a 30-9 halftime advantage.

Coach Erin Gendreau was able to spread playing time around liberally, with everyone getting a chance to run against the Seahawks. Avery Cobban led the Knights in scoring, finishing with 13 points and three steals in the game.

Madison Lawrence was a major factor for the Knights in the middle. She dominated on the glass, pulling down 11 rebounds, with eight in the first half, and also had four blocked shots. Grace Rothera had five boards for the Knights.

The Knights will host Abington High School in a makeup game tomorrow afternoon as the SHS Gym at 1 PM. Then, on Wednesday, they will travel by ferry over to Nantucket for a game against the Lady Whalers.
